Introduction:Realistically it would be better if people did not smoke. Many people do smoke, and some of them have no intention or desire to quit. There is no reason why your home should be saturated with second hand smoke to convenience the smokers in your family. There are plenty of reasons to make people, including yourself, smoke outside.
Once you start chasing smokers outside, you can air out your home. You will be surprised how much better your home will smell when the stench of stale smoke is gone. You will even begin to notice the strong smell of smoke on people's cloths when they walk in your home.
If you have children, smoking outside your home will avoid exposing your children to second hand smoke. Some people smoke in another room away from the children, and then allow the child back into the room once the cigarette is put out. Do they not realize that the smoke is still lingering?
Yes, it is a pain and an inconvenience to go outside when you want to smoke. If it is raining or cold outside you might even have second thoughts about wanting to smoke. This could actually help you to smoke less and eventually quit.
Making yourself or your family members and friends smoke outside will save money because you may not smoke as much, so you will have to buy less cigarettes. It will also save you money because you won't have to buy as many air fresheners or cleaning products to remove the yellow build up from everything in your home. You won't have to replace furniture that has cigarette burns in it as often either.
Taking that walk outside to have a smoke will exercise your legs and your lungs. If you are going outside to pollute your lungs, at least give them some exercise first. If your family or friends know they cannot smoke in your house, they will get up and take the walk outside. If you don't smoke, you can still enjoy their company outdoors with out worrying about breathing in the smoke.
Don't feel guilty about asking people to go outside to smoke. If they want to pollute their own clothing and lungs that is their business, but it is rude for someone to pollute your home and lungs, especially if you are not a smoker. Even if you are a smoker, a non smoker may feel better about coming to visit you if they know you go outside to smoke.
